“It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements…”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭15:28‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Have you ever seen a Christian group or church require persons to wear certain clothes or otherwise change their appearance to come to their church or to become a follower of Christ? In this letter to Paul and Barnabas, the apostles advised them to not force Jewish practices upon these new Gentile converts to Christianity. The Gentiles did not need to be circumcised as the Jews were, but there were practices which were important to maintain. Yes, the original instruction to “choose your battles” came from the Holy Spirit! Sometimes you may find yourself tempted to add to the gospel, asking others to follow rules Christ did not ask of us. Instead of trying to change outward appearances, may we always focus on our own heart change.🚦
